Mod Podge Mania!

We have been doing a little remodeling around the house lately and changed our colors.  I love the song “Home” by Phillip Phillips and I knew I wanted to turn the lyrics into art to match the new color scheme.  After seeing so many ideas on Pinterest I decided that the best and least expensive way would be to Mod Podge it.  I have never used this medium and was eager to get started.  I had a canvas already and just sprayed it grey to match the new colors in the house.  I got a large book of scrapbook paper at Michael’s with colors that would match and I borrowed a Cricut from a friend to cut the letters, and I was all set to get crafty.

“Home”

Phillip Phillips

Hold on, to me as we go

As we roll down this unfamiliar road

And although this wave is stringing us along

Just know you’re not alone

Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear

Don’t pay no mind to the demons

They fill you with fear

The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone

Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear

Don’t pay no mind to the demons

They fill you with fear

The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone

Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Mod Podge is a lot like Elmer’s Glue.  I am not sure if Elmer’s would make a good substitute, but the consistency, tackiness and smell are identical.  There are many different kinds of Mod Podge, but I just used the classic matte.

I sprayed my canvas grey to match our decor and got blue and yellow paper to match for the lettering.

This was also my first time using a Cricut.  I played around with different fonts, but ended up using the classic font.  I used different sizes and colors for the letters to break it up a bit so it didn’t look all the same.

I placed the letters on the canvas to check for sizing issues and spacing, then started the Mod Podge.  I spread a thin layer on with a paint brush, then added the first words and added another layer on top to seal it.

It was a little tricky to get the letters perfectly straight, but I like that some of the letters and words are a little off center, it makes it unique.

It didn’t take long to dry and it was ready to hang in just an hour!  I love it and it looks perfect hanging next to a picture collage of family photos above our stair case!
